Ya'all don't know what ya missin. Black pudding ( a good one )with lots of pepper and spice in it and non of those great lumps of fat is awesome. With spring or Spanish onion on some nice French crusty roll, or indeed fried or grilled for a breakfast. (think about the name for a minute....Break...Fast?
Me thinks there is some deep rooted meaning in this relating to when people went on a fast and the very next day they had a Break...Fast meal. Hmmmm Streaky Bacon...Does this mean a naked pig is exposing himself?
 
I agree...with Rosalind !...the thought of eating fried congealed pigs blood makes me wanna retch and heave !!..I'll have an extra rasher or a sausage thank you.

Ewe are of course right Andrew. I have seen so many top chefs praise the joys of a decent black pudding......I would try it !....I just got to get that ' gag factor ' set aside first !

Andrew has pretty much got the etymology correct. However, the fast concerned was no more than overnight after supper. It wasn't a fast such as, for instance, Ramadan.

It used to be common practise to make black pudding without killing the animal. You would just let some blood out and stitch it up again. It seems like a good idea actually.
